Outdoor Ceiling Fan Guide

An outdoor ceiling fan is a great addition to any outdoor area for use in both summer and winter. Not only will an outdoor ceiling fan help keep you and your visitors cool in summer, they are also said to help keep bugs away - bugs like mosquitoes that can annoy you when entertaining or having meals on your patio. Whether you are after a stainless steel ceiling fan or something a bit more tropically inspired, we have a huge range to suit all your requirements.

Most outdoor ceiling fans will feature either stainless steel metal blades or plastic blades as timber blades are likely to swell with the moisture and will require replacing more frequently.

Keep in mind that if you require extension rods or light kits, these should also be suitable for outdoor locations to stand up to the environment they are installed in. Most outdoor fans have the option of stainless steel extension rods and some have suitable outdoor lights that can be used.
